We spent the day at Melones Beach reading and visiting with quite the roost of chickens. It's a narrow sandy/shell lined shore but there were easy places to slip into the water to cool down. It was part of the great variety of beach choices...More

Excellent snorkeling spot, I was amazed by all the types of ocean flora, I didn't see many fishes though. It has a long coral reef so you can spend a couple of hours snorkeling peacefully. It has easy access, highly recommend!

Located on the western side of Culebra, overlooking Luis Peña Cay is a great quiet place to sit down and just listen to nothing. Extremely quiet and secluded. Easy drive from the main town of Dewey.

We attempted to snorkel here but did not find the beach very impressive nor the snorkeling. It is fairly close to the center of town so it's easily accessible to people staying in town. Wish I had more to say.

Watch the sunset. Reef out further is the nicest. Go out by the picnic benches by the beach sign. You can park right on the beach. Mostly rocky, best for snorkeling and picnics/

The beach is rocky and long. We walked way down and back. The snorkeling was like swimming in a fish tank. Schools of beautiful fish and even a turtle. Saw a snorkel tour bring people here but it is easy to do from shore.
